The royal family is linked in these two pictures sent by Marj Bryant.
They were among a collection left by her grandfather, Herbert Thomas Clifton, who was a city councillor for Cosham for 14 years in the 1930s and 1940s.
The chap in uniform being met by the council in Portsmouth dockyard was Prince Henry, the Duke of Gloucester.
He was the younger brother of Edward VIII and George VI, the Queen’s father. It is believed he was returning to Britain following a world tour.
Marj’s second picture shows George VI at the tunnel entrance to one of the air raid shelters dug into Portsdown Hill above Cosham.
I suspect it’s the one which had an entrance behind Cliffdale Gardens half-way up Portsdown Hill, off London Road.
Neither photograph comes with an exact date. Perhaps readers could fill in the blanks?
